A pigeon runs into a flock of pigeons and asks their leader what is your number in this flock? The leader replays: I am not suppose to tell you our exact number, but if you take twice our number and add a half of our number and still add another quarter of our number plus yourself would be 100. How many pigeons were in that flock? Write an equation and solve it

  • math - ,

    Let x be the number of pigeons in the flock.

    2x + x/2 + x/4 +1 = 100
    (11/4) x = 99

    Solve that.
